A Dutch treat this time: introducing the Polderscraper.

Moving on to what seems to be a Singapore treat: Killer Litter.

A somewhat existing term that needed to be inducted: the farmscraper.

Small skyscrapers serving a purpose: introducing the spotmark.

Skyscrapers preluding an economic recession: the boombuster.

Is there a term for skyscrapers that you just can't help but want to eat them?

Yumscraper does it. The opposite could be yuckscraper.

Certainly one of my favorite skyscraper effects: day stretching.

View several stunning photos of amazing Dubai in the Huffington Post’s story, “Dubai: Pearl of the Desert,” by writer/actor Jay Tavare. It features the latest images of the city’s fast-growing and most impressive skyline from the Burj Khalifa to Palm Island Dubai and the Dubai Mall. The author writes, after visiting the Burj Khalifa that, “..I got a sense that if it was not the biggest, tallest, fastest, rarest and most expensive it has no place in Dubai.” Amazed by the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, Tavare credited its architects Adrian Smith, Marshall Strabala, William Baker and George Efstathiou for their “daring design.”

Read the story at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jay-ta...b_5584262.html
